This fast and furious collection of fractured fairy tales with a modern twist tells what happens when the Big Bad Wolf decides he (or she) doesn't want to be big or bad anymore! Old Granny Stinkyfeet is just trying to tell the kiddies some stories but she's having trouble with the Wolf. He won't eat her like he's supposed to! Instead, he wants to be the good guy for a change, so he's off on a mission to become a hero - no matter how many people tell him it's impossible. The show utilizes audience participation.

Once Upon A Wolf was first performed by The Theatre At Monmouth in Monmouth, Maine on August 11, 1996.

Loved this script.  A tongue in cheek  retelling of several fairy tales in which the Wolf refuses to play his usual bad guy role.  The script is witty and quick.  Our children's audience loved it but so did the adults because of the little side lines.  We did this in-the-round out doors with simple sets and even toured it to an small under-resourced school.  Granny and Wolf carry the show but the rest are ensemble and could even be done with different actors to expand the number of roles.  After writing this, I'm looking at more of Steph's scripts to consider for next year.
